Adele swept the Grammys on Sunday night but, in a moving speech, she suggested she might turn down the award for Album of the Year for her best-seller 25.

"I can't possibly accept this award. I'm very humbled, and I'm very grateful, but the artist of my life is Beyonce," Adele told the audience, through tears.

Later on, the pop star appeared on stage clutching two pieces of her final Grammy and extending her arm as if to give one piece to Queen Bey.

People on Twitter immediately thought Adele pulled a Mean Girls:

In the final scene of Mean Girls, Lindsay Lohan's protagonist Cady Heron breaks her Spring Fling queen crown into pieces and she throws them into the other contestants.

However, it's not clear whether Adele broke the Grammy intentionally or not, and it looks she actually didn't give any part of it to Beyonce.

In a backstage video, you can see Adele sneaking backstage and handing back the broken statue to grab a fresh one.

At the end of the night, the broken Grammy was nowhere to be seen:

Adele was quite outspoken about her conviction that her award should have gone to Beyonce for Lemonade.

In the backstage press area, Adele said:

"My album of the year is Lemonade."

"I spoke to her before just to let her know how honoured and privileged I felt to be nominated alongside her, and we spoke afterward as well and she was very gracious and humble, as always, as we've come to expect."

"And the reason I felt the need to say something is because my album of the year is Lemonade. She is my icon of my whole life."
